Just last week, a Magistrate in Barbados jailed a tourist for six months after he broke quarantine regulations to go and 'buy Fanta'.

Dean George Scott, 49, admitted to going buying snacks when he appeared in court and Magistrate, Ian Weekes, handed him the jail term to serve as a 'clear warning' to others.

Weekes said: "I got to send a message to you and to all the other people that this cannot be tolerated. We have made too much gain, so you have to do six months. Walking out of quarantine no man, this cannot be allowed."
